People person

by fugue_state_of_mind

My mama always told me I couldn’t make friends because I just didn’t understand other people. She said that if I tried harder everyone would want to be my friend.

 

I’ve never really been a people person, that's what my mama called 'em. People persons. I don't know how a people person is different from a normal person, but I know I want to be one.

I want to make friends, to understand people and be one of them "people persons" my mama talked about.

 

I still don’t understand people, but I'm trying.

 

I try talking to them, I try listening, I try to understand what makes them tick. My mama always said it was important to know how a person ticks.

I thought it was funny, cause it made it sound as if a person was a watch. Still, I wanted my mama to be proud of me, so I tried.

I really tried to figure out what made them tick, to find out what they love and hate, but no matter how many people I try to understand it just doesn’t work.

 

I talk to them, I bring them home to my mama's old house. I even try to take them apart to see what makes them tick, but they all end up broken.

I'm still not a people person, even after trying to talk to and understand so many different people.

 

I won’t stop trying though. My mama told me to never give up.

 

My mama also told me that to know someone, to really know them, you have to walk a mile in their shoes.

 

So... That's why I always keep the shoes.
